    Talking to FedEx. I say: I was expecting the package to be delivered tonight, but unfortunately it/that didn't happen.

    Are both okay?

    They are both OK, but I prefer "that".

    I prefer "that" with "didn't happen" but I would probably say "... but it didn't arrive" or "it wasn't delivered".
    Remember - if you don't use correct capitalisation, punctuation and spacing, anything you write will be incorrect.
